Who can borrow the Hacking Box?

We lend our Hacking Box to organisations, institutions and persons in Berlin and the immediate surroundings that want to teach children and teens how to hack and write code. We also support hackathons and companies that want their employees to have some relevant experience using the Hacking Box too. Please note that the equivalent purpose has to be of ‘no commercial interests’.

To organisations, institutions and persons who want to teach how to hack and write code we lend the Hacking Box free of charge. Companies should ask for conditions.

It is possible to design the content of the boxes according to user-specific requirements. Click here to view the options.
